From Immobilized Cells to Motile Cells on a Bed-of-nails: Effects of Vertical Nanowire Array Density on Cell Behavior
Scientific reports (2015)
Institution: Lund University, Sweden
Cell Line: L929 (Mouse fibroblasts)
Research Area: Nanowire
Conclusions: Understanding of the interactions between cells and nanowires. The results provide guidelines to minimize cellular stress on nanowire arrays. Additionally, the findings show that cell behavior can be controlled by adjusting nanowire density, which may have applications in drug development.
